Kedleston Group is proud to announce it will be opening a brand new independent specialist provision in Windlesham, Surrey in September 2021.
The bespoke purpose-built school is being developed following the success of Kedleston Group’s established London based provisions Silverways School, Leaways School and Brookways School. These schools are highly experienced in supporting children and young people towards personalised outcomes. Providing the additional support needed to enable them to meet their full potential and ultimately prepare them for adulthood.
Fernways School, Windlesham will support children and young people with autism and associated learning needs, enabling children to re-engage positively with education from 7-16 years old.
The school will provide local children with a specially designed learning environment created to meet their sensory and emotional needs. It will offer a low arousal and nurturing safe place where they can learn and grow. Class sizes will be small, no more than 6 children in a class with one teacher and teaching assistant. Classrooms will be ‘enabling environments’ with sensory lighting, muted colours, individual workstations and visual timetables.
The curriculum is being designed to meet the academic, social, emotional and sensory needs of each individual child. The school will follow the National Curriculum providing young people with access to a range of qualifications including GCSEs, ASDAN and functional skills as well as a range of practical and vocational courses. The school will also offer children opportunities to learn outside the class room, through forest schools and accessing their local community.
Fernways will equip children for adulthood and prepare them for the world of work and college, through access to careers services, employment opportunities and college courses.
The school will be supported by a clinical team, including a SALT and OT who will work closely with us to embed therapies within the school day.
Through close partnerships with families, professionals and the wider community, Fernways School will ensure that all children who attend the school meet their full potential.
Kedleston Group are proud that all our schools are Good or Outstanding with Ofsted.
